I also had this issue when I upgraded today.

Yes, I think there is actually something broken. When I did "opkg files
illume-config-illume" after the upgrade, it showed that this package was
actually empty, just like several of the other illume packages
(illume-keyboard-*). Doing an "opkg install" with the URL of the
packages in the testing feed didn't seem to work either, I had to
download the ipk's from the testing feed, put their md5sums into the
packages list in /var/lib/opkg/daily-all and "opkg install *.ipk". That
did it for me.
